2521  Media / Single-Player RPGs / How Did You Play Final Fantasy XII? on: July 16, 2007, 12:41:52 AM
(Seriously, I've never played an MMO that had an fFish battle system. I imagined FFXI does, but, er, I've never played that, and it's apparently not indicative of the genre as a whole. i've seen WoW being played and WoW combat looks NOTHING like FFXII combat).

ffxi and ffxii essentially use the same battle system(and probally the same game engine too) except ffxi uses the job system instead of the stupid lisence board. theres some other small differences too like limit breaks not consuming mp and summons not sending party members away or consumong all your mp. the only use i found for summons in ffxii is so out of the box i didnt even think of it till after i got rid of the game.

The question here is if Nintendo will be trying to attract even more customers at the cost of alienating the more devoted of gamers? Looks like the answer's 'yes' to me.

I agree, for the most part.  Armageddon must be nigh. :P

I really do think it's still too early to call it, though.  But if there still isn't much to choose from in six months besides a bunch of party games and minigame collections, this'll join the Virtual Boy as shit from Nintendo that I can't be bothered to own.

agreed. also while sega did create stuff like phantasy star and shining force. nintendo had starfox and metroid. if those aren't somewhat hardcore i dont know is.

a party in valkrum dunes was more enjoyable than the ffxii combat system. the difficulty of the bosses really turned me off from the game. you know that earth dragon with like moss growing on it? the first time i fought it,it somehow berserked itself. i found that with many boss the longer the fight went the more likely it was that i would lose the battle attrition. also ffxii is one of those games where you can get stuck in a endless loop of death > resurection > death. until you eventually wipe wich is what happend to me at the last boss i fought before i quit and traded the game in. perhaps the fact that i was trying to play it as if it was ffxi is what doomed me since i was only concerned with controlling one character at a time. wich for me was Ashe who i had using axe/sheild. well at least i can say that ashe is my favorite FF female since quistis in FF8

2525  Media / Single-Player RPGs / suikoden 5 on: July 12, 2007, 08:59:24 PM

If Suikoden IV's issues were purely story related, I think a lot more people would be forgiving to it, though maybe not. However, there's plenty of gameplay issues too. Next to no dungeons, sailing was monotonous as hell (I can't see how people can say and WW are equally bad, WW at least had a feeling of speed and had things going on that kept it fresh), it shrunk the party which is pretty stupid for a game where you have nearly a 100 playable characters, and some of it was just poorly balanced. What the FUCK were they thinking with those instantly reviving skeletons? It's not as horrible as everyone acts though, but it's definitely the low point of the series.

this phrase alone makes it clear to me that the gripes with suikoden 4 are mostly related to having played the first 2 games. ship sailing wasnt bad i got used to it and its a non factor once you get vikki

i cant understand why people dislike 4 so much when i thought it was the best of the ones i've played(3,4,5) does it have something to do with 1 and 2? maybe im just a graphics whore =/

I watched the trailer that was on the Live Marketplace. Dunno if it's the same, but looks/sounds good, as I expected. Kinda seems like a more traditional FF. Also REALLY like how Mistwalker's actually using 5 member parties.

wow i didnt notice that neat!
2528  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Full Lost Odyssey E3 Trailer on: July 11, 2007, 07:30:03 PM
wow now that looks like a quality rpg. i will keep my eyes on this one.
2529  Media / Single-Player RPGs / suikoden 5 on: July 11, 2007, 07:23:13 PM
if you liked 4 but found 3 boring then like me you will find 5 boring. if you liked 4 you may be better off getting suikoden tactics. its not a bad rpg but it failed to ever hook me.

...Didn't we just have this thread? What happened to the days when people read the actual reviews on this site? :P

reviews can be misleading if your views on games are not in line with the reviewers. ever read one of techii's reviews? >_> for example if i was to read a review written by prime mover i would take it with a grain of salt since im a more gameplay oriented player. and while not bad the gameplay in suikoden 5 doesnt indeed get boring.

I'm just gonna interject one thing here, from what KOS-MOS said way back (I didn't intend this thread to go in this direction, so I've sorta stayed out of it, but oh well). Actually, I LOVED Zelda with the split controller setup. The fact that I was holding different controllers in each hand was probably the best part.

I didn't realize how incredibly uncomfortable and forced the "two hands on one controller" setup was, until I played with the nunchuck/Wiimote combo. I could hold the nunchuck to one side of me, and the Wiimote on the other, and it was just incredibly comfortable. I could play for much longer, without getting tired, than with a PS2 or GameCube controller, because I wasn't having to hold a controller in front of me all the time.

Call me lazy, but it just felt "right".

did you have an orgasm? ....

when i turn off my system for the night the only thing thats tired is my mind. my hands never get tired so i have no clue what your talking about. and eusis i think the touch screen is great for rpg's especially strategy rpg's. the wii mote however fails and for most games is not better than a good ole controller.

my concern with the wii is that ive already been burned by nintendo(see gba connectivity)and now i hear they are banning companys from having online play,no doubt because they want it first. so i have concerns they will enforce wii  dongle controls on some games.

i have i mean when i was a teen i read jurassic park, buts its a coveinent excuse and eusis was most likely singing the praises of 360 anyways wich is something i dont want to read or hear meh.
